More a long, short story than a novel, it played out in a colourful kaleidoscope of innuendo, circumstance and wit. I feel I have just watched it on screen or stage rather than read. An excellent choice!
Fans of John Cowton will know him for being a fan of "Proper British Comedy," and will be pleased to hear that his debut proves it without a doubt. Do not expect to find slapstick within the pages of Henley's Ricotta, nor any of the offensive comedy styles that are more favoured on television at the moment. Henley's Ricotta is the kind of comedy that makes you chuckle quietly as you read rather than laugh out loud. It's very subtly written, and most importantly it is realistic. The location is still very familiar to anyone who has ever stayed in a bed and breakfast, the characters are the kind of people that you encounter on the street every day, and the situation is one that is becoming increasingly familiar.
If you're looking for the type of story that will keep you absorbed for weeks, then this probably isn't for you. But if you're looking for a light-hearted story - that's a bit of a change from your usual reads - which will keep you entertained for an afternoon, or if you just want to find out what the elephant on the cover has to do with the story, then I would strongly recommend you download Henley's Ricotta.
